Experimental method

William F. Mohs, Francis A. Kulacki

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter provides a description of an experimental apparatus constructed to permit real time measurement of frost thickness and planar morphology during growth and melting, as well as heat transfer rates. Quantitative data are obtained via digital reduction of normal and in plane images of the frosted test surface. Data reduction is described, and measurement uncertainties are summarized.
